While Nashvillians lament iconic buildings neglected or lost over time, the community wisely stopped the destruction before it was too late. Creative and intriguing adaptations of once-abandoned buildings with strikingly beautiful materials, architecture, and design have shaped a vibrant development landscape of rich reflections of the past. Trolley barns, a boot factory, an automobile manufacturer, and a hosiery mill are just some of the original uses embraced in awe-inspiring ways in building Nashville’s future. These adaptive-use treasurers also help shape the character of the interesting districts they are located in. Join us for this tour around “adapting Nashville,” including a visit to Old Glory, a speakeasy located in what once was the boiler room for White Way Cleaners!
